Communications Director of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Henry Asante Twumhas said they are working closely with government to ensure that Charles K. Akonnor's unpaid salary is fully paid.

Akonnor has been relieved from his duties as the head coach for the senior national team, the Black Stars.

He has been replaced by Milovan Rajevac and was unveiled on Friday at the premises of the FA and will be assisted by Otto Addo and Maxwell Konadu.

The Serbian will earn $30,000 per month and $100,000 as a signing-on fee.

Asante Twum speaking to Joy News said C.K Akonnor is owed salaries in excess of seven months.

“We’ve met him and discussed with him. The Ministry will come back to us with the payment plan. Once that is made available to the FA, we will give it to him,” he revealed.

He, however, added that all bonuses owed the outgone Black Stars coach have been cleared.

Akonnor was sacked following Ghana's defeat to South Africa in the 2022 Fifa World Cup qualifiers.
